Sending Signals is a show about music, movies, and creativity. Matt Royal is the man who is standing behind this project as well as the interviewer of the show. On July 30th, 2019, his guests were John Illsley the ex-bassist of Dire Straits, and Mike Connell from The Connells.
That was episode nine from the first season of Sending Signals. In that episode, John Illsley talks about nostalgia, the pressure of being huge, and whether bass players should make solo albums. Also, you may remember The Connells for their hit “74-75” but there’s a lot more to the band’s career. As Mike said, “It was awesome to talk to Mike Connell from the band about their past and future.”
“John Illsley is a guest and is a really interesting chat for Dire Straits fans I think. You can find me on Twitter @signalpodcast if you want to retweet something,” he has written in the e-mail.
At the same time when the podcast was made, John was touring his show about The Life and Times of Dire Straits. Below is the full podcast running out for an hour, so you can click on the play button and enjoy this wonderful episode.
